On Thursday 17th May 2012, Annette Auckland was elected to the Parish Council for Flawford Ward. Annette has lived in Ruddington since she was 8 years old and works as a teacher at Dovecote School in Clifton. She is a former school governor and a keen supporter of local sports teams. Annette also has a keen interest in local issues including all aspects of traffic in the village, facilities for younger people and making better use of existing facilities including multi-generational activities. She wants to promote the ‘localism’ agenda so that the Parish Council more effectively influences Rushcliffe Borough Council planning decisions that impact upon the village.
